The Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, commonly known as the Scottish Rite, is one of several groups that are part of the worldwide fraternity of Freemasonry. The Scottish Rite is the largest and most widely practiced Masonic Rite in the world. Scottish Rite degrees expand upon the teachings and lessons of the first three degrees. The Scottish Rite degrees teach a series of moral lessons culminating in the 32° degree, Master of the Royal Secret. The Scottish Rite continues a Master Mason’s education in many ways.

The Valley of Palm Springs Scottish Rite was Chartered on October 19, 1987.  We invite all Blue Lodge Masons to join us and enrich your Masonic journey.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Illustrious John R. Heisner,  33°,  Past Grand Master
Personal Representative of the Sovereign Grand Inspector General of the Supreme Council in California
